Business deals down by volume globally by 32%

Challenging macroeconomic conditions and geopolitics have negatively impacted the deal-making sentiments globally. Against this backdrop, a total of 4,188 deals (comprising mergers & acquisitions (M&A), private equity, and venture financing deals) were announced globally during August 2022, a decline of 16.5% compared to the previous month, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database revealed that the deal volume during August 2022 was also down by 32.8% and 25.2% compared to the monthly average of Q1 and Q2, respectively.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Rising inflation is a major concern worldwide, impacting investor sentiments. Geopolitical tensions also seem to be taking a toll on the cross-border deal activity. While most of the key markets are registering decline in deal activity, several of them are experiencing a double-digit month-on-month decline and witnessing new lows in deal-making.”
